The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance / Alliance canadienne de kinésiologie (CKA / ACK) wants to help students of Kinesiology and Physical Activity as they are to enter the work force or to continue studies in specialties. That’s why #KinStartUpKit is a great tool for undergraduates and graduates to get started as Kinesiologists.
The CKA / ACK invites you to take the time to better understand how Kinesiology is practiced in Canada and thus help you achieve your career goals.
The CKA / ACK is a non-profit organisation representing nine provincial kinesiology associations (PKAs) that are member associations and over 4,200 affiliated Kinesiologists. The CKA / ACK works with a broad group of stakeholders that include industry, government and other cause/illness/health professional association groups. The CKA / ACK acts to unify and harmonize the governance and standards for kinesiology within Canada. Given that the mandate for the CKA / ACK is national in scope, over the years it has worked hard to build mutually-beneficial and cooperative relationships with provincial associations and groups.
The information made available through this website may differ from one province to another. The primary purpose of this website is to provide Kinesiologist information, examples of resources, tools and material, definitions, job titles, scope of practice, etc. As kinesiology is provincially legislated, all these may be different from one province to another. The CKA / ACK is not responsible for consequences and damages that may occur as an outcome of its use or misuse, incomplete use and mis adaptation, and its interpretation by anyone. It is to be stressed that the aim is to guide Kins and if anyone has difficulty over interpretation, they should seek independent advice.
